Falkirk co-manager Lee Miller is not concerned that the team has failed to score in its last two League One fixtures.

The Bairns were defeated 1-0 by Airdrieonians then held to a goalless draw by Partick Thistle in their last two games. Despite that, Falkirk are still top of the League One table, four points clear of nearest challengers Montrose.

Confident in team’s ability

Falkirk has the chance to get back on the goal trail when they take on East Fife this afternoon.

Miller is confident that the goals will come. But first, he addressed the draw against Partick.

“Some would say it’s a disappointing result (against Partick). Obviously we want to go and get three points in every single game, but I think it didn’t help that coming into the game – having been beat the week before – a draw isn’t a bad result We probably could have won it, but they are a good side and are up there challenging” he said.

“Not getting the rub of the green”

“We’re doing all the right things, we’re just not getting the rub of the green in either box just now. That’ll come. We’ve got players who can handle the pressure. We’re in a good position just now” Miller said, regarding the lack of goals in the last two games.

As Falkirk are top of the league, Miller’s comments make sense. He has every right to be confident. Falkirk has scored 17 goals in 1o games so far this season, an impressive total. With East Fife currently struggling in eighth place, it would be no surprise to see that goals for tally increase on Saturday afternoon.
